David "Bruce" Cummings

Moffat and Routt County Program Coordinator

Born in Twin Falls, ID, Bruce was raised in Ogden, UT and spent summers on his family’s farm in Sublet, ID, learning the value of work.

Once Bruce was old enough to handle a paint brush, he was taught property management and maintenance in order to help with his family’s rental units. Bruce learned how to run a retail business in high school working at his family’s art gallery and picture framing business. Bruce opened and managed another gallery and picture framing business as a high school senior. After a few relocations, Bruce moved to Craig, CO, in 2007 to manage properties. Shortly after his arrival in Craig, Bruce met a woman who volunteered with Advocates Crisis Support Services.

After witnessing how Bruce worked with a tenant that attempted suicide, she asked if Bruce would volunteer for Advocates Crisis Support Services. Bruce was trained then worked for almost two years with the All-Crimes Division. Once given the opportunity, Bruce transferred to the Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault Division to work with men and women who became victims of abuse. Bruce stayed with Advocates for over 8 years. Bruce is a member of the Access to Justice Committee, and the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault Inclusiveness Team.

Bruce found his passion working with victims and teaching them the skills that are needed to get out of abusive situations. Bruce noticed that children were frequently caught in the middle of these situations and often used as pawns between the parties as a means of manipulation. Bruce began looking for a way to protect these children. He worked closely with Advocates’ Child and Family Advocate to get help for these children, which led Bruce to Northwest Rocky Mountain CASA – a place that he can help make a difference in these children’s lives.

Outside of his work with NWRM CASA, Bruce enjoys spending time with his wife, Julie, his 8 children and 20 grandchildren.
